2. The results are subtle. Those who use this tool can be overwhelmed by the results. "Whether you are treating hyperpigmentation or trying to generate collagen for the improvement of wrinkles, acne scars, or stretch marks, microneedling works best when it is combined with in-office procedures such as fractional laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, or professional microneedling, " says Dr. Akhavan.

Here are some tips for you if you want to try Microneedling:

1. Choose the right length needle for your skin problem. For wrinkle treatment, both superficial and deep, use between 0.5mm and 1.0mm roller. For increasing penetration of products, use a superficial needle between 0.25 and 0.5mm long.

2. Avoid too much pressure. In order to avoid damaging you skin, avoid putting much pressure when rolling.

3. Do not treat inflamed skin. Treating areas with skin infections will just add up to skin inflammation and possibly spread infection. So avoid that!
